Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/30/2013

Good morning everyone :)

Sure hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was actually quite busy, including a very early Saturday morning trip to Boise and Meridian. 

I'm hoping to take some time today to get around to visiting you all, I always feel awful when the Happy Homemaker Monday slips by and I don't get around to all the participants, so I'm going to try very hard to get that done.

Alright, on to today's HHM!!!

The Weather:::
64 degrees this morning.  We got more rain overnight and I can honestly tell you that I've seen more rain here in the past two months than in the 7 years I was in Arizona.  Goodness!!!


Right now I am:
Enjoying a very hot cup of coffee with Vanilla Creamer and lounging in my Cath Kidston pj's with pink soft socks on.

That I could just take the whole day off and do nothing but lounge in my pj's with hot cups of coffee  and a good book.   

On my reading pile:::
I wasn't really enjoying The Welcome Committee of the Butternut Creek, so I switched to A Wreath of Snow  by Liz Curtis Higgs and this one I'm really enjoying :)   

On my tv:::
Downton Abbey Season 4 - It premiered last week in the UK and you know me, I don't wait until January for it to come to the States, I have to watch live.  If you wish, you can also watch it online, here is episode 1 and here is episode 2. :)

On the menu for this week:::
I'm still compiling the new menu, so only have meals assigned for today and tomorrow.  I have to get to the commissary on Tuesday for grocery shopping too.

Monday - Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, Twice Baked Potato Casserole
Tuesday - Chicken a la King with Noodles 
Wednesday -
Thursday -
Saturday -
Sunday -

On my to do list:::
Laundry - wash, dry, iron, put away
Tae Kwon Do

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Last night I finished the knitted cuff I was working on, today I'll be starting the second one and then I'll have my pair complete.  Jasmine has been wearing hers everywhere and she's loving it.  I ended up giving her the grey pair because that's the color she wanted and I am out of grey.  Also have the crochet stash buster blanket I'm busy with.

Looking around the house:::
Just did the dishes, so the sink is empty.  Once they are dry I'll have to get them all packed away.
Did a big house cleaning on Friday so don't have much in the way of cleaning to do, aside from the daily pick up and tidy here and there.

From the camera:::
Tree in the front yard

On my prayer list:::
Many people, many family members. 

Bible verse, Devotional:::
God brings us to the end of ourselves to show us how much, how desperately, we need him. We need the power of his Spirit to help us walk in obedience, no matter the cost. We need his help to forgive as we’ve been forgiven, to love as we’ve been loved, to be patient with others as he’s been patient with us. Only through the Spirit can we break the power of sin in our lives—whether it’s addiction or bitterness or gossip. So remember, it’s not by your might or power, but by God’s. Admit your dependence on him. - Zechariah 4:6

Twice baked potato casserole sounds really good!! My kitchen has been well used yesterday and today. I canned a bunch of grape juice and there are jars everywhere.

I often find God reminding me over and over how much I need Him!!

Have a great week.

I have a lot of fun doing this, thanks for allowing me to join in. I'm so horrible when it comes to meal planning ahead of time. For me it's usually a last minute decision.

I understand the busyness, it is almost to a ridiculous point. But the Lord wants us to put Him first, so as long as we are spending time with Him, we will be okay! A friend told me that the Lord was a wonderful secretary - if we ask Him how to prioritize our day, He will show us the way. I always loved that advice, even if I don't always think to use it. Hoping that all things work out for your family. My husband and I have aging parents and we understand your situation. Sending prayers your way.
